8. Normal Cellular Functioning
Everything that happens in our bodies happens at the cellular level. Every cell is surrounded by a membrane (a skin) which allows hormones, and nutrients, to enter the cell. Hormones are required for every cell to function efficiently and they facilitate whatever chemical reactions are required in the cell. Vitamin B12 plays a role in stabilizing the cell membranes, making this process possible. Without adequate Vitamin B12 the hormones can’t enter the cell and facilitate the correct processes. Incorrect cellular functioning can cause lack of energy, disease and ultimately death.
